S2E1: Battle of Countries (and Grumpy Old Men)

S2E1: Battle of Countries (and Grumpy Old Men)

Happy 2018, Book Friends! We’re excited for this new year of reading and recording and sharing our thoughts! Thanks for returning and listening along.

To start off the second season, Kyrie and Cori go head to head in book battle with English (Kyrie) vs French (Cori). Because Kyrie is an Anglophile and Cori is a Francophile, we thought it would be fun to have a battle of countries!  During their discussion, Kyrie and Cori drink Plum Deluxe Tea’s Easy to be Green (if you use BOOKSANDTEA in the checkout, you get 10% off your first order). It’s a green tea with hints of blueberry and raspberry, but isn’t very overwhelming and adds a nice sweet touch to the tea.

Kyrie’s pick: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson (Amazon | IndieBound)

Cori’s pick: The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George (Amazon | IndieBound)

Coming Up Next Week:

Kyrie and Cori duel again, but with Kyrie picking a French book while Cori picks a British one! Who will win the book battle of French vs. English?!

Kyrie’s Pick:The Bookseller by Mark Pryor (Amazon | IndieBound)

Cori’s Pick: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde (Amazon | IndieBound)

Hi Book Friends,

We are soooo close to announcing our first episode release of 2018!  In the meantime, I just found an excellent deal on a book we will be reading later in the season.  It’s a ways out, but why not go ahead and snatch it up right now and read it later on (or now, your choice)!

It is the Kindle version of In the Woods by Tana French.  It is currently $2.99!  Click through to buy a copy to read along with us.
